Winter Range at Phoenix Arizona
concluded today with 749 shooters taking part, our member Renegade Ty was
fortunate that he was able to compete, we trust that he had a fantastic
experience at seeing a shoot of this magnitude. Guess he will have quite a bit
to tell on his return. Today at The Last Frontier five scenarios kept us well
and truly entertained with The Sheriff cleaning the match, congratulations to
Sundance Kid who was the overall winner, both Buster Giggs and Bad Alzima won
their categories. Interested in taking home a "Crocodile Dundee" knife

was a much cooler day then it was for last weeks shoot, I guess we are heading
towards winter much faster then we realize with one month gone in 2015 already.
Great to see all of our serious shooters here today to see if they could out do
their shoot times from last week. Our local photographer Siringo was here also
taking a few shots in his spare time, check how many empty shells are in the
air, I can find three, how about you ? Well done Siringo. Match Final Main Match 01022015.pdf
Climatic conditions were given to us today and more then an enjoyable day was
had by all that attended. I must apologize as the scores today are only of that
of Posse # 1 due to some minor technical breakdown of computer data. Hopefully I
will have the situation back under control in readiness for next weeks shoot.
Bad Alzima has provided some of the Stages for next weeks shoot which starts
Bang on 9am,thankyou Bad Al. It is very pleasing to see Buster Giggs well on his
come back trail. Just wonder what he has in mind ? Our overall winner today was
Sundance Kid, congratulations to you, you shot very well considering your badly
blistered hand. I trust that it has completely healed before next weeks
competition. Scores for today as I have them : Match Final Main Match 02232014.pdf
Firstly a warm Welcome and Happy New Year to all those shooters out
there no matter what disciplines you shoot. We had a very pleasant day today at
the Last Frontier with scenarios of a different twist then those that we had
been used to. Like always some of us just needed to blame the firearm for our
mishaps. Once again the weather was very kind to us offering us cool, shaded,
but extreme drought conditions, a complete opposite from last year wereas we had
576mm of torrential rain leaving the Last Frontier and many other areas
completely isolated. I must go now and help Jack Beauregard as he is concreting
the foundations for our new Telegraph Office. Oh, here is today's scores. Match Final Main Match 02022014.pdf
great day was had by all those that attended, the weather was quite pleasant. I
guess you might say the lull before the predicted storms and more flooding supposably
coming our way. This last week produced 120mm of rain and localised flooding and
the predictions are offering more this time...... Lakota shot the match clean
today, congratulations. The Last Frontier shoots again next Sunday 24th.March,
2013. Will you be here to enjoy the Last Frontiers hospitality?

Today was the first shoot for 2013 and what an exciting day it was and an
excellent roll up too, thankyou. The weather was perfect just the complete
opposite to that of last weekend when we had 576 mm of rain which made the Last
Frontier un-visitable with all the flooding. Today we made up for that with five
outstanding Stages. Two shooters shot the match clean, Bad Alzima and Grissley
James... congratulations to you both. Check in from time to time for info on our
new match called "Shooting the Wild Frontier" you can even use your
.45acp semi autos. Todays scores are here : 03022013.pdf

thankyou to all of you that tried to make it to the Last Frontier today but were

days are getting shorter and of course the cooler days are not very far away. It
was great to see Siringo return today for the first time since his major
surgery. Welcome back Siringo. Most of us had a hard time catching our
horse today not to mention remembering its name....Smile and there was the

all with new content. Just the same it is interesting to compare the times of
past similar events. Congratulations goes to both Cpt.Jackson and Wyatt Earp who
shot the five stages clean. Todays scores are here in the pdf file.27022011.pdf
Pictured is Rooster
Cockburn blasting the pop-can in one of today's action packed scenarios. The
day was quite warm and cloudy after the very early morning rain at 6am.This was
followed by pleasant dry conditions until the last shot was fired for the
morning.....then the Heaven's opened and down came the rain. When lunch was
finished and it was time for all to head off home the sun came out again shining
brightly. A wonderful day of shooting was had by all, thankyou for coming along.

weather reporting kept some of the well know shooters away today but still the
diehard were here with guns a blazing.
An enjoyable five stages were shot featuring some trick shooting at the Opal
Mine and a few lessons were taught on Stage 5 by Buckskin Leslie using his wife
as an in between the targets. Due to his expert teaching skills no harm came to
his wife. You will be able to get similar skills next week 7th March,2010. Be
there and get square. Only 8 mm
of rain fell in one heavy shower during the match. Today's scores are here 28022010.pdf
Firstly I would like to thank
the Cowboys and Cowgirls that braved the wet conditions today and made our shoot
an enjoyable one. Yes,19 mm of rain fell during the five courses of fire, I
guess in a way the conditions were quite pleasant as we were forced to take
shelter only twice.For those that shot the previous shoot, then you will be able
to compare your scores that are located by clicking on the pdf file.07022010.pdf
Top temperature today was 30
degrees but a cooling southerly made for pleasant shooting conditions. The
cowboys started rolling in at 8am ready for the days competition. It was also
pleasing to see visitors coming for a look see. Thanks Cpt Augustus and
I.D.Claire for issuing out the invitations. Also a very Special Thankyou to the
man that was Doc Holidays lifetime mate Bill Neville,for the perpetual trophy
" Rest Easy Macca Old Mate" he made in honour of his mate". This
award will be won at the Doc Holiday Memorial Shoot the first shoot in
September. Pat Garrett was won by Lane.Todays scores are here in the pdf file. 22022009.pdf
Yes, good shooting weather
again today at The Last Frontier. A mild cloudy day made for fast shooting
scores. It was pleasing to see the southern shooters here again, as one of them
told me "The Last Frontier is one of the premier places to get in some top
practise". Winners of the Pat Garrett were Wild Bill Fisher & Bull
Shot. One Armed Bill was well again after last weeks burn out and he was back in
good form. No Pony just clipped Alabama shooting times, I recond' he will have
to watch out otherwise he may have to walk home in the future. Mohawk didn't
drop his gun today and showed us some mighty fine shooting. Checkout the pdf

February 25th 2007.
Saw quite a cool day with a couple of intermittent showers pass over the Last
Frontier. There were plenty of smiles to go around with five challenging stages
being shot, everyone present had a ball. After lunch when it was time to
clean-up the range the day warmed to 28degrees.Thankyou to the regular workers
for making my job just that little bit easier. To view your scores click here on
the pdf file 250207.pdf. The next shoot is next weekend
07" February 3rd &
Australia's first Stagecoach and Buggy Boot Sale followed by the Long Range
Rifle categories, Cowgirl/Cowboy Silhouette, Cowgirl/Cowboy Clays, Pumpkin
Shoot, then 10 action packed Main Stages.
To those persons that could not make it due to ill health and there was quite a
few of you, we hope that you all get well very soon. To those that did not come
because of other excuses, we feel sorry for you as you missed an incredible
joyous weekend of comradeship and Cowboy Action and a fabulous Talent Quest
hosted by Ripley Rose. The weather was extremely pleasant and a cool breeze made
the weekend even more enjoyable. The Early Nomination Winner was Morgan Earp. The top Cowgirl placing went to I.D.Claire. Top
Cowboy went to Terror. The Encouragement Award went to Little Joe. The Talent
Quest was won by Rick O'Shea. Click on the pdf file to view the scores.Cowgirl07.pdf
started with a couple of light showers and a temperature of 22c
deg.(ie.66f.degrees for our American friends) and reaching a maximum of 31c
(89f).Five demanding stages were shot and all present had a good time. We had
two visitors today from the United Kingdom. They tell me that real bullets and
pistols and dressing up in the Spirit of the Game are not allowed in the UK. Now
that is something to think about. So to all you shooters in Australia its time
to put Australian apathy aside and start participating in your Clubs Events
before its too late.
